Kean has always followed his passion for the arts and has made good use of his god given talents. His education in the art field has been with an Associate of Arts degree at Chabot College in Hayward, Ca. and a Bachelor of Science degree in Graphic Illustration at San Jose State University in California in 1979, receiving various awards along the way.
He is a San Francisco bay area resident, and that is where he does much of his work. Commercial art work for business, faux finishes, and custom murals, being the main stay of his work, he tries to devote his spare time to his art and musical interests. He does commissioned pieces for those interested in illustrations or paintings. One of his most interesting works is his family tree illustrations recaptured from old family photos.
